The BGA's Policy team advocates for a more transparent, accountable and efficient government through public policy reforms.

We work to protect and strengthen Illinois' Freedom of Information Act and Open Meetings Act and to propose policy solutions to prevent corruption, inefficiency and waste in government.

The policy team advocates for good government across Illinois by crafting legislation to improve government efficiency and accountability. We track trends and research best practices in good government, and publish analyses and perspectives on our website and with media partners.
